Elizabeth Police Director James Cosgrove tells WNBC-TV in New York that four suspects are in custody. He says a fifth suspect who fled the scene, allegedly in a stolen vehicle, remained at large Friday night.

The robbery reportedly occurred around 3 p.m. Friday at Bayway Scrap Metals in Elizabeth.

Cosgrove says patrol officers soon spotted a suspicious truck about two miles from the scene. The suspects were then captured following a confrontation.

Police say two suspects fired gunshots as they fled in the stolen vehicle. No officers were injured.
